As you all have red my previous articles about hair packs and face packs. In most of the packs I have advised to use honey. As honey is naturally hydrating, helping to lock moisture into your skin. It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. So it’s great to use on problem skin: and it is packed with vitamins and minerals like calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium. And it contains antioxidants, which helps to keep the skin look young and fresh. As everyone knows it is a very delicious ingredient from our kitchen.
Hair is an important part of our beauty as it enhances the physical appearance of a person. However, most of us do not take hair care very seriously because of which hair continues to get damaged and results in further problems such as hair fall, dandruff, brittle hair and so on.
